Team

Ernesto Rojas

Founder

Born in Colombia, Ernesto graduated with a Master’s Degree in Computer Science and made an extremely successful career managing multi-million dollar projects as an SAP consultant. Throughout his professional endeavors, Ernesto has lived all over the world, including Italy.  Little did he know then, his love for Italy would become a source of inspiration for founding D’Vine Grace.  

In 2010, Ernesto was inspired to take a leap of faith, and what we now know as D’Vine Grace Vineyard was put into motion.  Fast forward to 2019, Ernesto has been overjoyed to see the fruit of his labor serve hundreds of couples in love throughout North Texas.  His passion and personal mission have been to ensure every client feels that their needs and hopes are put first.  

 

Brandon rojas

CEO

Like his father, Brandon is no stranger to hard work! Since our inception, he’s worn numerous hats at D’Vine Grace, from spearheading marketing and advertising to creating and implementing virtually all of our internal business systems and processes. 

During our startup years, he stayed hands-on by hosting tours and helping with post-event venue cleanup. We also put him to good use managing the books because of his educational background in Accounting. These days Brandon leads our amazing team of managers and oversees daily operations as CEO. He’s very passionate about two things — customer service and his pets Sancho & Pancho the Cats and Peter Pablo the Corgi.

 

Kayley Bacon

Director of sales

A proud Dallas native, Kayley jumped into the wedding & event industry after graduating from Texas A&M in 2018. She joined the DGV family as our Director of Sales in 2020 and has poured her heart and soul into the job, making every guest feel welcomed and truly cared for.

A thoughtful, diligent wedding professional, Kayley radiates positivity and exudes our core values in her customer-facing role. She consistently goes above and beyond to make each bride feel special, often putting in overtime to ensure no detail is overlooked. We couldn’t have asked for a better Sales Director!

When she isn’t working, Kaylee and her husband Dylan enjoy spending time outdoors with their three lovable dogs — Brownie, Lucy, and Shelby.

Luisa Duran

Executive Chef

As our Executive Chef, Luisa Luran is acclaimed for her culinary artistry and commitment to personally sourcing all ingredients from only the best outlets! She’s in charge of preparing our diverse and delicious menu selections, treating each event meal as if it were for her own family. 

Originally from Venezuela, Luisa moved to Texas six years ago to start a new life. She’s blessed D’Vine Grace and our patrons for three years with her masterful skills, versatility, and enthusiasm. And she’s never shied away from custom requests; in fact, she’s been known to improve on cherished family recipes brought in from our wedding parties. 

Luisa never fails to inspire us with her ongoing efforts. We hope her D’Vine cooking will continue to delight our guests for years to come!

 

Daniela Diaz

Director of catering

Our diligent catering service is one of the unique features that set D’Vine Grace apart from other venues — and it’s all thanks to Daniela Diaz, our prized Director of Catering! 

Prior to taking the position, and even today, Dani has assumed the duties and responsibilities of several critical roles at our venue. From answering phones to tours, sales, and event management, she’s elevated countless guests’ experiences over the years and continues to serve as our treasured Sous Chef at every event. 

During the week, she also conducts our event menu selection tastings, which are always looked forward to by guests! Dani’s worn many hats here at DGV, but no matter what she’s up to she’s always working hard to keep our guests 100% satisfied!
